In the background a donkey is at the moment doing all of the work. Painted in oils on a sandblasted board. Signed A. Ruelle, a painter whose always witty work is associated with the California style (in particular the Monterey style), sometimes featuring a crackle finish and sometimes painted directly on a rough grained board to emphasize its rusticity.
